Goan bebinca in Lisbon, Portugal

Bebinca, also known as bibik or bebinka, is a type of pudding and a traditional Indo-Portuguese dessert. Traditional Bebinca has seven layers. The ingredients include plain flour, sugar, ghee (clarified butter), egg yolk, and coconut milk.[1][2]

It is a traditional sweet of Goa, specially popular during Christmas.[3] It is also easily available to carry and preserve for a long time or eaten fresh.

Bebinca was also adopted as a typhoon name in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, contributed by Macau.[4] It is prepared in Portugal and Mozambique also, although traditionally it is a Goan layered cake.
